There’s more to Niagara than just the Falls

No Comments

From Canada.com:

In the morning you’re on a catamaran a few feet from the base of the world’s best-known waterfall, with green water the colour of a Chinese vase thundering down from above and enveloping you in a mad, swirling mist. At lunch you’re sipping Cabernet Sauvignon in a posh dining room overlooking ripening vineyards.

Later in the day you catch an intense production of Dracula at the world-renowned Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, then stop at the craft brewery in town before finishing things off with dinner.

I’ve probably been to Niagara Falls a dozen times now, and I seem to discover a different version each time.

From the Sun (UK):

NOTHING can prepare you for the power and majesty of Niagara Falls.

I’d wanted to see them since a relative had brought me back a souvenir snowglobe when I was a kid.

I wouldn’t get to see them in all their deafening glory until more than 30 years later — but it was worth the wait.

From D’Marge:

Thousands upon thousands of snap-happy travellers have shared their #beachvibes, #sunsets, and #wanderlust on Instagram. The app is our go-to place for planning holidays and making friends jealous of our jet-setting, and we’re never short of inspiration.

Sometimes we’re in the mood to get away from it all, but when we’re looking for a quick digital ego boost, capturing a selfie in an Insta-famous location is sure to do the trick. These well-trodden spots are immortalised on countless social media accounts across the globe, yet they haven’t lost their charm (or their ability to pull in likes).

The online travel specialists at TravelBird studied the hashtags of 470 popular tourist attractions to reveal the most Instagrammed destinations in the world. According to their ranking, the top 15 are:

From Stuff (New Zealand):

With all the rules in life – chew with your mouth closed, don’t talk to strangers, look both ways before you cross the street – there’s another that should probably be added to the list: don’t propose to your girlfriend while 170 million litres of water a minute is hurtling over a 52m precipice next to you.

I can see why the young German backpacker thought it might be a good idea: get down on bended knee as the catamaran approaches Niagara’s Horseshoe Falls and his beloved will be so overawed by the majesty of the spectacle, she’ll have to say yes.

But when you get this close to one of the seven natural wonders of the world, it’s a little like being in the spin cycle of a washing machine.

Our family trip to Niagara Falls

From News Day:

Last summer, two of my friends and I visited Niagara Falls for a couple of days. Our families each rented a room at the Hilton. After we checked into our rooms, we walked over to the falls and took some pictures and videos. We went to the gift shop there for a while and looked at some cool baked goods and T-shirts. Once we left, we went back to the main area to wait for the lights inside of the falls to come on. When the lights finally came on, we all got very excited and took more pictures.
